Brandi Carlile - "Every time I Hear That Song"
Because it’s been a year, and I still feel you wrapped around me like a blanket I can’t seem to get my feet untangled from in the middle of the night. Not that I want to get untangled from you, but that you’re wrapped so tightly around me, in so many ways, that I couldn’t even if I did want to. You are a constant inspiration, and yet in the strangest moments you come up and stop me in my tracks. I like to believe that you’re slowing me down to make sure I stay focused on the exact target that I started off aiming at. You’re like a constellation guiding my ship when the North Star is hard to come by. Not always there but when you are you’re bright as day.
I miss you. We all miss you. Yet, we are grateful beyond words for the time we had with you, and yet 100 more years wouldn’t have been enough. Thank you for your inspiration, for your guidance, and for your reminders to slow down, steady ourselves, and remember our goals.
So today, with heartbreak bound by promises I choose Brandi Carlile’s "Every time I Hear That Song", as my, by the way - I forgive you, sail on silver kitty, one more starship away, song for a, one year without and 10 years with, still on the positive side of the equation, go out and find it, Thursday, one year anniversary.
